The English Premier League season has begun and the clubs have had an exciting summer in the transfer market. With the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United, and Chelsea all growing in recent years, it’s hard to predict this year’s title race. Here, Kubet bookie reviews the 5 brightest teams for the number 1 position in England in the 2021/22 season. One of them was the defending champion last season, or has been the champion many times before.
1. Manchester City
It is undeniable that Man City is being appreciated more than any other in the race to the Premier League title this season. The Etihad Stadium team has dominated English football over the past decade when it won 3 times in the Premier League in the past 4 years, in addition to 4 consecutive League Cup titles and the 2019 FA Cup.
Pep Guardiola already has a near-invincible squad, with names like Ruben Dias, Phil Foden, and Kevin de Bruyne. With the addition of £100 million rookie Jack Grealish, it will not be surprising if Man City is considered the best candidate for the championship.
By building a reasonable strategy, Pep can help Man City compete in many arenas. The 2021/21 season is expected to continue to be a fierce race for The Citizens, with the biggest goal being the first Champions League championship in history.

2. Manchester United
MU owns a very strong squad and is considered the strongest opponent of defending champion Man City. The Red Devils have got 2 quality signings, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane. This duo is expected to fill the weaknesses in the MU defense last season.
The goalkeeper position of the Old Trafford team is also creating great peace of mind when Dean Henderson is likely to be the number 1 choice of coach Solskjaer. They also have quality names in attack, and if they finish better, MU’s performance will also be significantly improved.
After 8 seasons without being able to win the Premier League, 2021/22 is expected to be a turning point for MU with this investment and careful preparation.
Chelsea’s biggest hope next season is coach Thomas Tuchel. The German leader has had more than half a year getting used to the new squad. That period of time is crucial for the future of both the manager and the club, as Liverpool and Klopp demonstrated a few years ago.
Tuchel’s adjustment helped Chelsea play excellent defensively and surprise with the Champions League title. The task of the former PSG coach will be to maintain this form next season.
Chelsea has yet to spend money in the transfer market, with the pursuit of Sevilla’s Jules Kounde and Dortmund’s Erling Haaland both fruitless. If successfully recruiting Romelu Lukaku, the Blues will make a big difference, when Timo Werner has not shown much after a lackluster debut season, and Tammy Abraham’s departure or stay is still open.
Liverpool has only had one major signing of Ibrahima Konate this summer, after a disappointing season when the defense was affected by a storm of injuries.

But coach Jurgen Klopp has just received good news when Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez have both recovered and can return. The duo made appearances for Liverpool in pre-season friendlies. This promises to be a makeover for the Anfield team when they have a comprehensive image with many star players.

5. Leicester City
Leicester City can be considered as one of the most stable teams when they always keep a position in the top 4 and only stumbled in the last round of last season.
The last time the Foxes won the Premier League was in 2016. Of course, there is a certain gap between Brendan Rodger’s army and the clubs that led last season, but an extraordinary ambition and effort will be possible. will help them do wonders, as they took home the FA Cup title last season.
This summer, Leicester recruited two notable rookies, Patson Daka and Boubakary Soumare. Coach Rodgers can basically be satisfied with the Foxes squad at the moment.

Lampard talked about the candidate to win the Premier League
With the available players and rookies, it is clear that the squad of Man City (the reigning Premier League champion) and Chelsea (the reigning Champions League champion) are much more appreciated. However, former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard does not think so. The British strategist said that MU and Liverpool are also bright candidates for the championship.
“I don’t think it’s a two-horse race [between Man City and Chelsea]. I think you can’t ignore MU,” Lampard told Hayters. “They’re not far behind last year and have brought in really impressive signings this summer.
So is Liverpool. For most of last season, they lost their mainstays to injury. Don’t forget the year before, Liverpool was one of the best teams we’ve ever seen in the Premier League. Therefore, you certainly cannot cross out their names, nor the potential challenges they can bring.
Arsenal and Tottenham both have good signatures. Leicester has just beaten Man City to win the Super Cup, West Ham has improved a lot, and Aston Villa, despite losing Jack Grealish, has consolidated a really strong squad. It all makes for an interesting season and we will see what happens.”
